SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City officials say they will make repairs and seismic upgrades to the Salt Lake City-County Building over the next two years.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1TCz16X ) that city spokesman Matthew Rojas said in a statement that the project will involve restoring the stone facade of the building and repairing windows. It is set to begin June 6 and finish in the fall of 2018.

The building will remain open during the repairs and upgrades.

According to the city’s website, the project will cost about $10 million.

The Salt Lake City-County Building was built in 1894. Rojas said the project is the most significant of its kind performed on the building since the late 1980s.
